1781[wordperfectmac] Re: Printing in WP - Classic
- May 9, 2005I have upgraded and the upgrade process (including launching Classic
that then asks if you want to update that, too) seems to choose the
Laser Writer 8 printer in Chooser. That is then configured for
whatever OS X printer you have and you can print automatically via a
.ps file (don't ask me how, I merely saw the .ps file being created).
However, since I have an OS 9 driver for that printer that gives me a
lot of control over the printer, I have reverted to the OS 9 driver
It works, but it adds a layer to the process even if you don't have
to do anything. No new fonts become available as a result of this
access to OS X printers.
